15 Healthy Snack Ideas For Work

One important step to leading a healthy lifestyle is to make sure the majority of your snacks are healthy.

Makes sense right?

But, if most of your snacks come out of the vending machine at work or from fast food restaurants it makes it extremely difficult to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

That’s where it pays off to do a little planning.  Instead of waiting till hunger strikes while at work, prepare some healthy snacks ahead of time and keep them on hand to help avoid the vending machines and drive-thru’s.

Here’s what to look for in a snack:

  • Foods that satisfy hunger. For example, nutritious snacks that contain fiber, protein, etc.  Stay away from processed foods as they provide little to no nutrition and you’ll be hungry again shortly thereafter.
  • Keep the calories around 150 or less.  Remember, this is a snack and not a meal.
  • Fruits and veggies, whole grains, nuts/seeds and low fat dairy products all make good snack choices

So what are some healthy snack ideas for work? Here’s 15 suggestions with 150 calories or less:

  1. 8 oz. of Fage Total Greek Yogurt
  2. 1 cup sliced fresh bananas and raspberries
  3. 1 packet of McCann’s Instant Irish Oatmeal
  4. 2 cups of carrots
  5. 10 oz. of organic goji berries
  6. Celery with 1.4 oz of hummus
  7. 1 oz. of Kopali Organics trail mix

    There is another solution to this…equip your workplace with healthy vending machines. They are generally free to install and there are even $500 wellness vouchers available for the facility (not to mention sales commissions…)!
